Sheeez
The method I used for the DR200. I found the original owner and sent him a snail mail with a self addressed envelope, a completed 130U for his signature and a note telling him I would meet with him if necessary. About a week later the 130 returned in the mail. He wanted out from under it as badly as I wanted the title correct. Bad part was I had to pay additional fees for it not being transferred correctly in the first place.

Re: Getting a dirt bike road legal

I did try to contact the titled owner, but # was no good. I thought about mailing the statement of affidavit to the address and a note but eh, I just didn't want to mess with waiting and wondering if the person did get it. Decided to call the title co and get on with it. It's all good though. I'm already ready to street-legal the next dirt bike.

While the administrative stuff is processing....a new VM24 carb, Rekluse and Trail Tech Vapor are going in now.

That would work, except the person was too far away, and didn't have a current address on them, anyways. But, yes, that would have been the best way. No title bond, no late fees.....

Not exactly. Ya'll are missing thrill-billy's "quotes" and winking emoticon above. If the title signature and 130 form signature are even remotely similar you'll have zero issue at the tax office. that is a triple wink there, get it now???

Re: Getting a dirt bike road legal

What I'm saying is this.

Wink. Wink. Wink. Wink.

Are you sure the old registered owner doesn't live inside You? Does he not live in us all?

Ps.... Sherlock Holmes doesn't work at your tax office.

Re: Getting a dirt bike road legal

Well I've ridden farther with you two than anybody so you know I'm no goody two shoes. In fact some may have a good argument that I'm not even a nice guy. I've bought bikes that needed title work because I trusted the seller's word. I'll pay for a bonded title before I'll commit a felony. It may be the easy thing to do, not likely to get caught, but there is just no good reason. I'm not judging anybody else's choice, people do it all the time, it just isn't me.

I wish we had met a few months ago, I could have saved you a lot of work.
I could have sold you my sons old 2004í e-start TTR125L already street titled with rekluse, BBR 150 kit and 26mm carb and YZ80 fork conversion.
Probably would have saved you a ton of $ and aggravation - lol.

Yes your were correct that project is probably getting real expensive with original bike purchase/title bond/recluse/etc.

Been there - done that. Iíll never get half of what was spent , but he did enjoy it for the 3-4 years he rode it.

In the end you will have a nice ride.

I kinda wanna plate another dirt bike now just to do it all smoothly from the beginning, you know, conquer the challenge to show The Man. I'll leave that for another time.

Re: Getting a dirt bike road legal

If a title was dated at sell a year ago is there a late penalty. white out would be too obvious. Trying to plate once plated Super Sherpa.
Can I transfer it before I get it inspected and plates? Guess I have to? I'm sure my question is redundant

In order
Yes. Big penalty. Used to be $25/month
You can transfer a title before it's inspected, and plated
You can do both at the same time

If you know the person you bough it from, and trust them. Just have them get a new title at the regional title office, or by mail. And re-sign it, with a later date

Re: Getting a dirt bike road legal

Get a clear title, street or not, and then register it in AZ. No inspection, no insurance needed, it doesn't have to have any street gear to get the title done...they just tell you it has to be done to legally street it. Put on your lights, horn, high beam indicator, and take it to a Texas after the 2 year registration runs out and title it in TX as clean street. Cost, around $29 for the AZ part of it.
